My Friend Makes a Good Johnny Depp, yes?


Here's my dear friend Deb, whom I'm spending the holiday weekend with over in Vancouver.
She's looking rather Captain Jack-ish in this photo because it's Halloween, and also because she moonlights as a makeup artist. I think she makes a rather fabulous (hot) pirate.

In this photo she remains suave despite actually being in the midst of calling 9-1-1, having just been robbed at the bank where she works as a teller.

" I've been robbed, matey! Sort of ironic, yarr, being robbed, me being the pirate and all!"

The officer taking her statement had a hard time taking her statement without cracking a smile.

This wasn't the first time Deb's been the teller facing a bank robber.

The other time was a few years back, on Valentine's Day. My friend told me she sometimes wonders if she should perhaps not show up at work on the lesser holidays.

Deb has a massive collection of the tools of the make-up artist's trade, including the The Death Wheel , which is a handy palette of shades designed to make one look decidedly unhealthy and er, dead. So for all my Zombie Pirate costume needs, I now know where to go.

The real Johnny Depp is currently in Vancouver working on a film. He's staying at the same hotel where Deb's husband works as a chef, but he hasn't yet managed to spot the elusive fellow.

Since you think she's hot, post pics of the two of you making out. Also ask her to make you both up as Japanese schoolgirls.

And be aware that Tai has posted an unlicensed photo of your garden on her blog, but I've already started the legal proceedings against her. I'll drop the lawsuit if the two of you are willing to post pics of yourselves dressed as Japanese schoolgirls and making out.

1. She looks amazing.
2. She looks indescribably-there-are-no-words-to-
describe-how-good-she-looks amazing considering she's just been robbed. Dude...

Tai said...

That's TWICE for her now...guess you can get used to anything!

(Definately HOT!) And don't worry...I think Grant is joking about the schoolgirl thing. But he might just sue.

I suppose a good pirate always remains calm during times of stress, storms, and pilfering.... she looks amazing(ly hot)!

Ah yes, when Earth Day or Fuzzy Parasol Day rolls around, I think I shall head for the hills screaming! What would be really cool is to show a "before" pic side by side with my "Jack" pic....then the true mastery will show-yaarrrrr!!!

very cool costume! She looks great. I love Depp. But how often do banks get robbed for the same person to have to deal with it more than once?

If I were Depp, I'd be elusive too. Dude owes me twenty dollars. Your friend should have her cutlass ready for the next time someone shady walks into the bank.

Okay, now you have to tell us. Which hotel is it???

Enquiring minds want to know.

Bella said...

Yeah, she makes a pretty good one!

Not sure I could pull that off...

This is why I don't even try with costumes. I'd be shamed next to such genius.

Pol* said...
